|Racing Engineering is pleased to announce its new partnership with DHL, the world’s largest express network and the logistics company for the world. DHL will be supporting the team during the GP2 opening round at Bahrain. Racing Engineering and DHL not only share the colours red and yellow in their corporate image, but also the passion for motorsports, their never-ending pursuit of speed, precision and excellence.
DHL is present in over 220 countries and territories across the globe, making it the most international company in the world. With a workforce exceeding 315,000 employees, providing solutions for an almost infinite number of logistics needs and with a fleet of more than 250 aircraft, DHL Express is also one of the largest air carriers’ worldwide.
Racing Engineering has been prominent in the GP2 championship during the last 10 seasons and will compete in the 2015 season with the British driver Jordan King and American Alexander Rossi. During the Bahrain round, Racing Engineering will carry DHL’s logos on its two Dallara GP2 cars.
Both Racing Engineering drivers have been competitive during the pre-season test days held in Abu Dhabi and Bahrain, and the Spanish team is working hard on carrying DHL’s logos onto the podium during their first collaboration.
Alfonso de Orléans-Borbón, President of Racing Engineering:
“It’s wonderful to be working with a company such as DHL. Both the quality and reliability in service and speed of delivery of this world renowned company are very similar to the requirements of a successful motorsport operation and the Racing Engineering team have always had quality, reliability and speed at the forefront of their success in the GP2 Series which is one of the most competitive environments of modern motorsport. The combination of DHL and Racing Engineering at Bahrain is a natural coming together which will work to the benefit of both.”
